$35 + $7 Postage and Handling? Does that include the cost of 6 months in the Betty Ford Celebrity Action Figure Rehabilitation Cinic?

Holy Crap, it actually gets worse:

It actually comes in "a beautifully trippy package" and "As an added bonus, the base includes a push button that unleashes a never-before-heard guitar riff sample from the vaults of Garcia's estate"

Wait, i'm confused. Is this a Jerry action figure, or a Wilfred Brimley-as-Garcia figure?

Thanks, but i'll hold out until the diabetic coma Jerry is released. I'm sure it might come with some additional surprises.

That's actually the first time I ever saw that one from the Spawn page. Somebody oughta take one of those things on a cross-country trip and pose him for pictures in front of all the famous landmarks, i.e., the Grand Canyon, Old Faithful, the Space Needle, the Lincoln Memorial, etc., like the urban legend about the lawn gnome that was stolen with photos anonymously mailed back to its owner from all those kinds of places (I've heard a version that involves a miniature of Grumpy from the Seven Dwarfs).



I hope I didn't just give somebody any ideas about doing something illegal. Better keep a tight grip on your Jerry dolls, unless, of course, you'd like for him to see this great land of ours.

I even have this one (though I had to paint his hair color and whittle some of the plastic down so he's the Jerry of 68 that I wanted)...kids gave it to me years ago, so it has been around.

The never before heard guitar solo is an odd little rift...

Defn should be taken on a road trip and posed for pictures--good idea, Bryan...

Action Figure or Plush Doll? If it is the Action Figure, I suppose we could let it go in a kind of G.I. Joe-nostalgia thing; but if it's the Doll, we may have to question the underlying motivation at play here.
